How to Document Your Travel Adventure
Not everyone is blessed with a great memory. That’s why it’s best to document your travel adventures. There are a lot of ways to do that—and here are 5 of those:
1. Make a travel blog
What better way to document your adventures than with a blog dedicated to your trips? It’s a good way to express yourself and write about where you’ve been. No one can tell you what to talk about, and you can even make a business out of it.
Write about how excited you were for the trip, what happened when you first got there, where you went, what you ate—and whatever else happened on the trip! Give your readers a guide to what’s best to see, what to do, and where to eat, and who knows, you may gain a loyal legion of readers because of that.
2. Create an Instagram account for your travels
Another good way to document your travels is to create an Instagram account that’s solely dedicated to you trips.
What’s great about Instagram is that you can be so creative with your photos, and if you’re not good with words, you can just let the photos speak for themselves! Document details and colors, the people, and make sure your photos reflect the feel of the place.
3. Try Video-blogging (Vlogging)
Vlogging is great because somehow, you get to let the viewers experience your trip vicariously.
To be a good travel vlogger, make sure that you get a nice camera (Canon EOS Rebel T3i is recommended), and speak clearly. You can even make use of a script if you want. This way, your videos would look and feel professional, and your viewers would love watching them. Be yourself and imagine yourself in your viewers’ shoes so you can give them a great viewing experience.
4. Write in a Journal
You can also go old-school and keep a travel journal. Write about how you felt during the trip. Let all your feelings out. This one is something you can keep for yourself, so there’s no need to censor your feelings. Write long or short passages—it does not really matter as long as you get to express yourself.
You may even doodle and draw about your experiences to give your journal more flair!
5. Make a scrapbook
And finally, why not make a scrapbook?
Sure, it may take time and require a little more effort, but scrapbooks are amazing because you really get to relieve the moment by touching and seeing your mementos.
To make the scrapbook better, make sure to add flyers of hotels or inns you stayed in, business cards, receipts, candy wrappers, or even petals or leaves that came from the place you visited. Make it fun and be creative!
Keep these tips in mind and your travels will surely be more memorable!
